See Google’s leaked Pixel 4 design from every angle in this new video Samsung's new Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ hit store shelves this Friday and Apple's big iPhone 11 announcement is set to take place less than three weeks from now on September 10th. OnePlus has a new OnePlus 7T series in the works and Huawei's upcoming Mate 30 Pro is set to be one of the most powerful Android phones the world has ever seen. On top of all that, Samsung's Galaxy Fold will finally be released next month — maybe — and the foldable Huawei Mate X will also go on sale before the year is done.

Believe it or not, the Pixel 4 leaks still haven't stopped ahead of Google's October 15th event. Best Buy Canada briefly posted (and has since pulled) a pre-order page for Google's new phones that confirmed numerous details. Both the regular Pixel 4 and its XL counterpart should have dual rear cameras (12-megapixel main and 16-megapixel telephoto), speedy Smooth Displays and Snapdragon 855 processors with 6GB of RAM. It also alludes to hands-free controls as Quick Gestures and suggests you'll once again have a promo that offers unlimited full-quality photo and video uploads to Google Photos -- at least, for a while.

Deluge of Pixel 4 photos confirms a few of the phone's key specs

Deluge of Pixel 4 photos confirms a few of the phone's key specs If you thought the torrent of detailed Pixel 4 leaks was over, you have another thing coming. Vietnamese phone shop D Store Mobile has sent nearly two dozen photos of a pre-release Pixel 4 XL to The Verge that appear to confirm some of its previously rumored specs. Notably, the main rear camera will snap shots with a brighter f/1.73 aperture (versus f/1.8 on the Pixel 3). The telephoto camera's specs aren't available, but you can safely presume there will be improvements to low-light photos and some close-ups. Curiously, the camera app will apparently default to capturing 16:9 photos to fill the screen, rather than 4:3 photos to make the most of the sensor.

The pre-order page only allowed deposits on 64GB versions in black or white, although 128GB and coral-colored Pixel 4 models are expected. There wasn't any pricing or availability, so it's not clear how soon the phones will be available or if they'll carry a premium over the Pixel 3.

Best Buy's listing leaves a number of unknowns regarding the devices s. Will raise-to-talk and other next-gen Google Assistant features be available at or soon after launch, for instance? The product page didn't mention these, but they're not necessarily off the table. Google may still have a few surprises left on the 15th, even if they aren't as many as the company might like.

Pixel 4 vs. the competition: The camera battle intensifies .
It's been yet another Pixel phone launch preceded by a ton of leaks, but we're still glad to see the official unveiling of Google's latest flagship. This 5.7-inch device may only have two rear cameras, but the software's been refined even further to include better Night Sight and HDR+. That's to be expected in the wake of more intense competition on the camera front from Samsung and Apple.
